Gretsch site states that the body finish is "array". What is that? Thanks

It's a web designer's error, is what it is. I think the new site says that for all guitars.

It's a polyurethane finish.

As for the 5127, it's from a discontinued line - similar to the 5120, but with different pickups.

What do the first two letters of the guitar's sn (KS) stand for? I imagine the K is for Korea.

The K is for Korea, the S is for the name of the factory, which is the SPG Factory.
The other K is KP, and that would be the Peerless factory :)

The 5127 is the baby blue version of the 512X series. Same body as the 5120, but come in assorted colors - (5124 - White, 5125 - Black, 5126 - Silver Sparkle, 5127 - Pale Blue, 5128 - Gold Sparkle, and 5129 - Red) and DeArmond pickups. They discontinued the series. The early ones (like mine) have B7 Bigsbys and pinned adjustable bridges. The later ones use B6 Bigsby with floaters. They finally removed them from the Gretsch product site a few months back since they were not producing them anymore, but if you Google Gretsch g5127 Images, you can see some good shots.
